I know. Looks like an equal HI. But apparently, my father said my HI to him was a lot peppier. And they BOTH noticed. It hurt my mom's feelings, and my dad told me I have to call and apologize to my mom.
...for not having as "peppy" a HI as my HI to Dad.
Dizzy? I swear I was a well-grounded child.
Was I subconsciously playing favorites?
I thought back to that phone call from a week ago. I'm pretty sure I was just excited for my parents that they figured out how to use the Bluetooth, and I could talk to both of them at the same time. The second HI was a, "congratulations, you figured out modern technology and we can all talk and celebrate together" tone. That should be easy to explain to my mom when I call to straighten this out, right?
. . . now, do I start that apologetic phone call with HI?
My 2 1/2 year old son Cole has been eyeing up the BIIIIG Froggy sticker for days like it's pure gold. I told him that was the prize: The BIG Potty deserves the BIG sticker. He earned it this week with a gleeful shout: "I GOT THE BIG POTTY STICKA MOMMY!!!"
So easy to please my lil buddy. Friends razzed me for not rewarding him with a "real" treat. "Take him shopping for a new matchbox car!"..."Buy him REAL stickers!" What?! Look at that face - he'd be thrilled with an empty box to play in.
Proud of ya, Buddy! Toot your horn...that I made out of a discarded toilet roll!!!
Hey, when I got this beauty, it was the hottest phone to have....back in '09. Yes, I've had my cell for THAT long. Now it's almost a game to see how much life this quirky lil pup still has in it.
I have no apps; even Facebook will no longer accept the archaic process of texting status updates and pictures. That was the only way I could connect with the digitally social world. I basically have become “THAT GIRL” who would never get a cell phone back in the 2000’s (damn, writing that made me feel old!) Now, “THAT GIRL” has a phone, but she can’t do anything cool with it!
However, there is a plus side. Since my phone doesn’t do all those neat things, I still try to have a conversation -- wait for it --face-to-face. Do teens even know how to do this?
I’m not on the phone while driving…mostly to dodge other drivers that are face down in their cell. (thank you, sis, for having a “designated txtr” while driving…initially thought it was funny, but now realizing this could be a life-saver).
My phone is not a drug that I can’t put down. Look around … how many people can you find NOT staring at their phone? Sad.
It’s that “Her” Phenom (see the movie – eerie future prediction?) that scares me away from taking the plunge into updating my phone. Isn’t it interesting how impersonal the means of social media is becoming? I guess until I accept it, keep a lookout for my status updates via smoke signals…
I had to laughed - I was just talking to friends about the painstaking steps we take to avoid getting deodorant marks on our shirts ... "...well, you have to get your WHOLE torso into the shirt by digging your arms into it up to your elbow and stretching it out so the bottom of the shirt doesn't fold into your armpits, wiping the deodorant off...." It works. Sometimes. "...you HAVE to wipe the deodorant off IMMEDIATELY with a damp towel. NOT tissues, otherwise it's a WHOLE MESS.." Nothing like white streaks AND wet spots on your shirt. Classy. "Well, just don't pick up your arms all day and no one will see it...." Ever try this:
The Nude Beer Fest in Palmerton is getting a lot of exposure ... yes, pun intended.
Sunny Rest Resort is a nudist colony in Carbon County (I prefer to call it "Full Moon Resort, but I digress...)
The welcoming resort is holding the Bare Beach Beer Bash Saturday June 28th, and yes, clothing is NOT optional.Â¬† “Nudity is required in beer festival and pool/hot tub areas.”
By the way, it’s cheaper to pay in advance, which I highly recommend … where will you put money anyway once you get there?Â¬†
Hats off to ya if you go … and shirts, and pants, and socks, and….
...Just bring EXTRA Sunblock

We talked to Chris Young on The Wake Up Call w/ Eric&Selena leading up to the big Froggy Fest 2014 this Sunday. He told us that he was not allowed to have anything red as a child -- M&M's, Kool-Aid -- you get the pic. Mama Young was worried the red dye would make Chris hyper.
.... Would it be a bad welcome to NEPA if I give Chris Young one of these backstage:
c'mon - he has to have outgrown the side effects, right? Ahhh, a taste of NEPA!
